Do you bother with expensive shades?

One of my sisters laughed at me when she found out my current pair of sunglasses cost a mere $6.

I can't justify paying a ridiculous amount of money for something I will probably break within a month of purchase.

I agree that they are too easy to loose and also break.
The money is down the drain.

For that very reason, I buy inexpensive sunglasses myself.
One day I will have the money to maybe treat myself, to something a tad nicer.....I think while we have lots of money going out of our wallets, we just have to cut down somewhere!
As long as the 'sunnies' do a o.k. job, then there's no problem I tell myself.

They ARE a fashion statement, always have been.
I'm not wearing a Chanel dress today or any other day, so down to El Chepo,
for me too.
Never! I'll pay around $5 for a pair and they last for ages! The most money I've spent on sunglasses is $14.95.
I actually don't own any sunglasses right now, but if I did, they'd be cheap ones.
I used to only buy cheap glasses, but back in 2007 I was on the road a lot for work, so I decided to look at some more expensive sunglasses. I bought some Arnettes, I think they were around $140 or so, and they were the best glasses I have ever owned. The lenses were perfect, the frame was solid, I loved them. I had them for 6 month before I forgot them in a public bathroom. I tried going back 5 minutes after leaving them, but the glasses were already gone. I've been mourning their loss ever since. Arnette doesn't make this model anymore, and I can't seem to find any with the same lenses. I won't be dropping money on another pair unless I can find something as good as my last expensive pair.
Not designer ones, no, (I don't really understand the point of those) but mine are prescription so that makes them a bit more expensive. I am careful with them.
No, I find it waste of money and I can't afford them either..LOL ! And I drop and break stuff a lot :-\

I just buy mine from the chemists!
No. I have had expensive sunglasses in the past, and they broke or got lost just as easily as my $14.90 ones do.
Only once have I expensive sunglasses, wore them to death. Now I buy inexpensive ones, for fiscal reasons!
Bought three pairs of Zeiss glass lenses sunnies', 35 years' ago, with legal maximum anti-glare.

One is 'everyday', one is 'spare', & one is for long-distance driving, & horse-riding.

About 10 years' ago, got Prescription pair, for book reading, on daily work commute, by train.

'Lashed out' & bought Oroton pair whilst they on Sale. Haven't worn them yet!

MUST have metal frame, & 'arms'. Sweat way too much for plastic ones.

My 'daily' wear ones' have had a lens replaced twice, & so too, the arms.

Wear them inside S/C's as well, & on rainy days, due can't stand the G L A R E!

My eyes just can't deal with sunglasses so I never buy them. If I did, however, I doubt I would pay more than $20. I had some made in my prescription and they got wasted as I felt blind. Tried Transitions too and no go there either.
